The mission of the Coalition of Lake Associations (COLA) is to facilitate cooperation among the member Lake Associations to protect and enhance the quality of lakes and their shore areas.
Since its founding in 1991, COLA has compiled an impressive history of advocating for preservation of the public waters by participating in formation of the Becker County Comprehensive Plan, updating the Becker County Shore land Management Ordinance, serving on County Committees and representing Lake Association interests before the Planning Commission, Board of Adjustment and County Commission
However, in order to effectively serve its constituency, COLA depends of volunteer participation from Lake Association members and at this time COLA is seeking to fill various leadership and committee positions. Please consider becoming actively engaged with COLA to assist in our goal of protecting the public waters. Maintaining and improving water quality of the lakes, enhancing the value of shoreland property and being able to give to future generations the enjoyment of life on a lake is a worthwhile investment of your time as a COLA volunteer.
The Coalition has a three-tiered organizational structure. First, the Lake Association members are the foundation of the Coalition. Second, each affiliated Lake Association elects or appoints a Representative to serve as a liaison and Board member of the Coalition. Third, the Officers of the Coalition are in turn elected by the COLA Representatives.
